River Description

Rancheria Creek runs during and after winter rain storms.   Flows can jump up dramatically during storms so it is safer to catch this run just after rain storms as high flows drop.   Log jams and strainers are commonly reported, so boaters must be watchful and ready to portage or avoid these hazards.
